Hung In the Balance.
lam Inclined to think that I wit
nessed the most Impressive sight of
my life Sunday, March I, UTS, the
day on which the algnaturea were at

Russia and Turkey at Ban Stefano.
In order to arrange terms of peace
an armlstloe bad been declared Janu

that when, Sunday, March I, a review
waa to take place In honor of the
ekar*s acceptance of the-throne, there
waa more than a poaalblllty that peace
might also be concluded that day. In
consequence, a large number of ex
cursionists from Constantinople ar
rived at San Stefano by steamboat
shortly after dawn, and when, aa early
as six In the morning, the whole of
the Imperial guard—a magnificent
body of some 36,000 men—paraded be

Nicholas, even at that early hour a
crowd of .over twenty thousand spec

Slowly the hours paaaed, and two

treaty was ready. Aa he waited for a
reply the agitation of the crowd grew
so tatenae as to almost reach break

whispered nervously: "Is It to be

j "MINUTE MEN" ARE SCARCE
Wireless Tslsgrsphy Is Prsctloed
t; Very Extonelvsly by British
' Flag Waggere.
| How many readers, of Answers
knows whst a "minute man" ta?
He Is sn army signaler who is so
skilled at his work that, with the ordi
nary signaling flag, he can "send" the
seventy-two letters, signs snd figures
' which the Morse code contalna in slx
'ty seconds. As some of the letters
have to be expressed by four move
ments of the flag, you can guess that
he has to be pretty smart. As a mat
ter of fact he haa to jerk his flag to
and fro at an average rate of five
tlmea a second.
"There is a tremendous smount of
competition for the distinction," said
a minute man to a London Answers
represetnstlve the cither day, "but It
is a distinction so hard to obtain that
minute men are very scarce.
"The regiment which has more than
one or two of them In Ita body of sig
nalers Is lucky Indeed.
"As a matter of fact," be went on,
"though people know so little about
them, signalers are of the greatest im
portance to an army in tlmea of war.
"Telegraph wires are rarely avail
abls and field telegraphs are much too
clumsy for use when a large stretch

I "In war the signaler has a,hot time.
He has to choose rising ground for his
work He cannot take advantage of
oover aa other troops can. The flash
of his hello or the waving of his flsg
makes a One target and the enemy
know that It Is good policy to shoot
"One signaler J know who waa at
tached to a mounted Infantry oorpa
had three hello glaaaea broken by bul
leta while ho was sending messages
In South Africa.
"Another man had his flsg shot from
his hand on two different occasions.
"But In times of peace the signaler
.la rather to be envied. It Is true he
gets no extra pay. The war otflce does
not think much of him, and his only
cash reward la a bonus for passing
bia annual examination.
I "But M a rule, unless a regiment la
very much reduced, be la not called
upon to perform an/ fatigue duty. Un

only carried a cape on route marcbea.
Instead of the heavy kit of the ordi

lived In big barracks know what a
comfort that la.

When Leaves Fall.
The call to the country is never so
strong as In autumn. Custom and
oommerce and society have conspired
to call men back to the city Just when
the heat has passed, and the mellow
ing air and the coloring world is most
alluring in the country. When the
I haze hangs over the hills, and leavM
are green and gold and scarlet, and
soft sunlight of Indian summer Alls
the world, then the west wind stirs Jn
man the half extinct memory of bis
i hunting ancestors and he longs to
strike the trail for the unknown woods.
Then It Is bis primal Instincts prompt
him to build wood flree and sleep un
der the starlit skies. But, alas I stern 1
necessity or feverish night of winter j
gaiety call most men back to the nerv
ous grind of the world as It la. But r
only if we oould strike t£e long trail
and answer the caft of Indian summer,
what wonderful high adventure, what
keen delight, and restful health we
might find over the rim yonder—from
whence the weet wind oomee.—Har

THINKS INVIGORATION IS IN AIR'
Writer's Explsnatlon of Vital Dlffei*'
ence Between the Londoner I
snd ths New Yorker.
"The difference between New
York and London," a man once said
to me, "la this: In New York. If you
have a new Idea, you can get it car
ried out at once; In London, if you
have a new idea, you are up against
a brick wall."
I" believe this to .be true, writes
Maurice Daring in the Metropolitan.
People In New York, and in America
In general, ara not afraid of new
Ideas, nor. Indeed, of anything new.
They are not afraid of the future. In
England, if a man finds, for instance,
that his profession Is uncongenial to
him, however certain he may be of
the Impossibility of hit making a suc
cess of it he will none the less very
rarely give It up, and try his hand
at something else. The future alarms
him. In America a man will think
nothing of throwing up bis profession
twenty times running, until he finds
something which does suit him.
I think the cause of thla particular
difference Ilea In the climate of Amer
ica, and especially lies In the climate
of New York. Juat as the climate of
some places fills the whole system
with an invincible desire to do noth
ing, with an lnsuperagle languor and
lloth. In the same way the climate
of New York fills the body and mind
with the desire to be up and about.
It la the nimble air which producea
the nimble wits; the stimulating at
mosphere which creates, In the denl-1
ten of New York, the love of bustle,
hurry competition and work. I am
not saying thla is either a good thing
or a bad thing—l am merely noting
and recording what struok me ss be
ing the main differences between New
York and London.

It would not be wise to build upon
the story of the coast Datives that In
' the Interior of Papua there are men
with talis. Similar beliefs have been
held in many parts of the world and
ssany agee, sometimes from Impres
sions of apes, sometimes from more

a common gibe on the Continent that
Englishman bsd tails. It originated
from the story that the people of
Canterbury or Btrood, having mocked
at St. Thomas riding upon a little ass
aad cut off lis tall, were punished
with the curse that thenceforth all
their boys should he born with tails.
And the scoffs of other Englishmen at
the "Kentish longtells" rebounded up
on the whole nation, so that even In
